Texas Chuckwagon Cuisine offers authentic cowboy trail cooking for the Dutch-oven enthusiast as well as for folks who want to make these traditional cowboy dishes in a modern kitchen. Value-priced at a remarkable $5.95, this stock stuffer-sized cook book explores the lore behind cattleman Charles Goodnight's venerable invention, the chuck wagon. Author Evan Moore met chuck wagon legend Shedrick Hardy III on the historic 6666 Ranch more than 50 years ago and has been smitten with real West victuals ever since. Over the years, he has attempted to recreate parts of that meal Hardy prepared, always with what he knew to be the same ingredients, always with authentic cast iron skillets and seasoned Dutch ovens. The book shares Moore's favorite recipes for migas, sourdough biscuits, round up stew, chicken fried steak, stolen chicken, cornmeal cakes, Texas camp bread, splatter dabs, spotted pup, drunken peach cobbler and many others. Victuals that would hearten the most jaded, trail-weary cowhand. Many of the recipes are from champion Dutch oven competitors. For those without the patience to dig a pit and nurture a cook fire, the easy-to-follow recipes are also converted for use on contemporary stoves. Pocket size, perfect as an easy-to-mail stocking stuffer or house gift with a bottle of wine.
